Track Name: Blisser
Out of your mind, but inside the storm
Just right as rain, the feelings so warm
So warm, so warm, so warm
Out of the hole, but inside the drain
What's going up, always burning on rays
on rays, on rays, on rays

Outside, sit still, cubic litres of blinding rice, the blisser
Windows, sit still, dragging nights against the lights, the blisser
Work chair, sit still, just enough time for one more fail, the blisser
Stage edge, sit still, from their monuments we hale, the blisser
White tee, unstill, only noise can make us feel, the blisser
Black lines, unstill, vintage towers, hidden drug deals, the blisser
Unknown, pleasures, suspect knowledge with an honest grain, the blisser
Green rooms, measured, words, ink, smoke like a train, the blisser

Out of your mind, but inside the storm
Just right as rain, the feelings so warm
So warm, so warm, so warm
Out of the hole, but inside the drain
What's going up, always burns on rays
on rays, on rays, on rays
Track Name: Bad Samaritans
There must be thanks, for all the pennies
Pennies from the heavens, they’re falling like debris
And these cracks are showing
Thank you to Primark, for collecting all the blood,
Bagging all the evidence, for the compensation
Now these facts are showing, but these facts are working
Thanks for the day, thanks for the 24th
360 some days, with nothing left to report
Now it’s back to working, yes it won’t stop working

How can there be an end to this, when the bottom line still exists, just to pay those dividends
Global apartheid, tyrants, shit disguise
Armageddon starts like this, old gods make way for capitalists, just to pray to those deviled ends
Global apartheid, tyrants, shit disguise
Track Name: Made To Take
She was a force, he was a coward
She knew the discourse, He could only whine about it
Every alley, I walked alone, she could not; every basement, I called home, she could not
Every dark street, I ventured, she could not; every justice, I found shelter, she could not

Where do you go, when the law won’t shake
What percentage of bones, must he first break
Left out in the cold, made to take his stain
The kindest of folks, left trawling the lake
Track Name: Traveling On Someone Else's Dime
Smoking cigars, 20 dollars, my resistance is petering out
On this rooftop, couple hundred bat, my resistance is petering out
No middle aged, ‘cause they all paid, their resistance is petering out
What comes this way, army parade, their resistance is petering out

Priv'lage, world unseen, Actions, no one heeds (eyes), we won't bleed (wide), we are thee (shut)
Priv'laged, ancestry, Sitting, Comf'terbly (palms), in this seat (greased), thrones built on (up)
Iv'ry, in our blood, crying, this soar thumb (tongues), on the shunned (click), we built on (on)
Lying, to ourselves, flying, on sales (then), youth hostels (we’re), back to our (gone) castles

Exchanged, No Change, Exchanged, Unmoved, No Change
Track Name: New Ways to Get Off
Suit and tie, symptom of disease, living high on suffered deeds
These the hands, Harvey Weinstien, but dudes got top notch movies
You're too special, you're way to special to let rot

Cosby Casey, stories old, brought up hasty under rug it goes
Industry, of flesh for gold, but dudes got some top notch shows
You're too special, you're way to special to let rot

Celebrate, all the work they've done, Celebrate all the minds they numb,
Celebrate, don't look so stunned, Celebrate let's just have some fun
Remeber the good old days, remember, don't let it rot

Found new ways to get off, found new ways, to get sold and bought
Same old ways same train of thought, Same old show but no one turns it off
We keep getting off, we can't keep getting off
Track Name: Children of the Spring
"Our home" "Broken" These words, I heard again and again
"Our home" "Broken" These words, I heard again and again
Youth, promised, elections, swept aside
Children, in new lands, mothers, wept and cried
Phone taps and door wraps from guided eyes
Neighbours and close friends, mouths shut tight
"Our home" "Broken" These words, I heard again and again
"Our home" "Broken" These words, I heard again and again

Arab springs prisons, families made to listen, unrevolution, rewind, rewind, rewind
The youth learned, to be tortured, to be raided, to be murdered,
Unrevolution, unrevolution, rewind, rewind, rewind
Unrevolution, unrevolution, unrevolution, rewind, rewind, rewind

Informal abductions to undisclosed locations. Enforced disappearances by interior ministers. Deny the truth apologize for nothing. Rely on the ruse of foreign conspiracies.

Denial, undisclosed names, Denial, rotting in cage,
Denial, divide and blame, Denial, fuel the flame
Denial, smile and wave, Denial, smile and wave
Broken homes for a rising tide
Broken bones for deeper insight
Smile and wave
